Happy weekend, everyone! I hope you get some leisure time over the next three days! I’m one of those freaks who likes to use the time to get those things around the house done that have been driving me crazy taken care of and maybe even catch up on some work. Lunacy, I know, but it makes me feel more balanced in the weeks to come. Have a wonderful time and here are some generous shop codes for you to use! xo Jen

I’ve loved Charlie & Lee in Vancouver for such a long time! Kleah and Josh Michnik’s dreamy shop is a mere 6 hours away, but I wish they were closer. The selection is always so beautiful and I love that they focus on independent designers and ethically-sourced goods. I was just admiring how much lovely stuff is in the online shop right now. My current favorites at Charlie & Lee are the Palm Print Dress, the Emma Dress, the Andhra Dress, the Sun Dress, the Slit Culottes, the Samet Jumpsuits, the Collarless Coat, the French Market Tote, the Dita Bag, the amazing jewelry, and all the wonderful home goods. If you’re in Vancouver, they’re located at 223 Union Street. More HERE.
I’ve been working on a big post about my English roses for later this week, so I thought I’d share one of my favorite gardens, Sissinghurst Castle Garden in the Weald of Kent, in England at Sissinghurst village. I haven’t been yet, but it is on the top of the list along with riding bikes in the Cotswolds and cider and caramels in Brittany. For now, I have this lovely book to thumb through repeatedly. I really recommend Sissinghurst: Vita Sackville-West and the Creation of a Garden by the incomparable Sarah Raven. The book contains a lot of blurbs from the articles Vita wrote in the late 1940s and 1950s about her garden and her strong (and often hilarious) opinions about plants, flowers, interiors, and lifestyle. She led a very interesting and much whispered about life. If you love romantic castle gardens, history, and rule-breaking, clever women — you should read it! What a beautiful place.
